How do you ladies reconcile the issues when you have vastly different interests than your children, and they really despise your activities?
I ask because ds wants to go to Disneyland this year, which is fine, and to save money/get experience, we'll be driving and camping along the way. Ds is 5, and really isn't into camping. He's a hotel kinda guy, and has been balking at the idea of being outside for 10 nights as we travel. We've talked about the fact that if we stay in hotels, we can't afford to even make the trip, and he's alright with that, but he doesn't want to walk around and explore the area while we're there. I can't leave him alone to go explore by myself, and there are no other adults that are willing to come with us (I'm single, his dad has no interest in him other than his every two weeks).
I could just say okay, and stay in our tent the whole time, but I've never been that far from home, and I doubt I will get to go back, and I'm frustrated.
How do you handle these things?
